Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas #11
Tim's Christmas tag 11 is very jolly, love the Santa and he used shrinky plastic to create his holly. I love his spritzing of water on a distress inked background to create bleach like water spots.
The background of my tag is a mix of Distress Ink colours peeled paint and tumbled glass. I used the same blending foam that had both colours in it, not sure if it would work but I do like the minty blue/green background.
I downloaded this adorable vintage image from the Graphics Fairy. I clear embossed the entire image and fussy cut it out and used Stickles on the tree. It is hard to tell from the photo but the image has a clear glossy coating and I white embossed with the snowflake stamp (TH Mini Holidays stamp set). I matted an acrylic tag over the sentiment for the glossy look (in lieu of the shrinky plastic) , and finished the bottom of the tag with 2 colours of twine.
Here is Tim's Tag #11, and he shows how to create on his blog here:
